Plaid will be big this winter. Sorry.

Fashion Trends Winter 2012

We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but it looks like plaid will be big this winter. Yes, AGAIN. And we know: how novel! Seems like every winter the fashion magazines bring the astonishing news that plaid is back: it’s like one, long Groundhog Day, isn’t it?

Anyway, plaid: it’s back. And if the outfit above (which is by Marni, and available here) is any indication of how this will pan out, it’s going to be a really long winter. And we’re going to be needing reinforcements…

    I was just wondering if it was time to get my teal and fuschia plaid pants circa 1992 back out of storage. Thanks, Fashion Police!

    (LMAO, no really, I wouldn’t do that to the world. I can’t imagine that I ever wore them out in public, let alone to work.)

    Pass the eyeball bleach, I need to erase the total boringness I just saw.
